Woodwards Landing used to be jointly leased by Scouts Canada and the Girl Guides of Canada. Scouts Canada withdrew from the lease in 2002 when their own rules made sharing impossible. Scouts continued to use the camp, but as renters from the Guides.
The site is now run as a park by the city government under the name "Scout/Girl Guide Camp Park".
